1. A monitoring system for collecting data related to an industrial environment, the monitoring system comprising:
a data collector communicatively coupled to a plurality of input channels, wherein the plurality of input channels comprises data relating to an aspect of an industrial production process;
a data storage structured to store a plurality of detection values that corresponds to the plurality of input channels;
a data analysis circuit structured to interpret at least a subset of the plurality of detection values to determine a state value comprising at least one of a process state or a component state;
an optimization circuit structured to analyze a subset of the plurality of detection values and the state value using at least one of a neural net or an expert system to determine a signal effectiveness of at least one of the plurality of input channels relative to the state value, and to provide an adjustment recommendation based, at least in part, on the signal effectiveness; and
an analysis response circuit structured to adjust the industrial production process in response to the adjustment recommendation.
